Breakfast Area and Living Room Progress

I know it has been long past due, but here are a few pictures of the progress so far of the living room and the breakfast area. I owe you pictures of the kitchen and I will post those soon (promise).

In case you have not seen the before pictures, you can click here.

So far this is what the breakfast area looks like.

Breakfast & Living Rm Progress 2I removed the bookcase from the right and as you can see the new paint, Pediment, by Sherwin Williams, really lightens the place up. It is the perfect greige. No more green bean walls! The dresser to the left was my first Craigslist makeover (you can read about its transformation here). It has since been moved to the guest bedroom and a new one has taken its place. I will write a post on that one soon too.

DIY Gold Tray

Lately, I have been visiting my local Goodwill WAY TOO MUCH… That being said I have made some seriously awesome scores! You just never know when there will be something that will catch your eye. My local Goodwill puts new items out on a daily basis.

So now that gold is back in style, I have been wanting a cool gold tray for my bedroom (or just because). And this is what I came up with! It only cost $2.92 at Goodwill. Booyah!

They were brown microfiber and over 7 years old. They had stains and some areas were wearing out.

I only needed a yard and a half of home decor fabric, and luckily it was 30% off. So I got a beautiful velvety-bluish fabric with a trellis design on it.

DIY Jewelry Holder

Hola! I wanted to share a little something I I thought up and my husband help me built. I follow several bloggers, one of them Honey We’re Home. I love her home, her closet and her organization tips. One thing she had that I totally fell in love with and I had to have one of my own was her bracelet organizer. She ordered her’s on Amazon for $35.00 which at that price, I just could not justify purchasing it since it was NOT a necessity. Oh but the idea of having one was so awesome!!!! So I just had to figure out a way to have my own…. and that I did. Here is my version and how I did it…
